Hi I’m Rachel and I want to support you to have an empowering birth experience whatever your story. Whether you have had a previously traumatic birth or have had mental health challenges, prepare for birth with Hey Mama. I have developed a unique antenatal course that combines Mindfulness, Hypnobirthing and Coaching tools so that we unlock any fear and negativity that might be holding you back from feeling excited about this wonderful time.
My focus is on guiding you through to your birth and the transition into motherhood, without judgement or shame. Whether its your first or third pregnancy, I will work together with you to:
- Develop your inner confidence & excitement for birth again
- Discover a sense of control by knowing more about the psychology of birth
- Learn lifelong skills to reach a level of inner calmness & relaxation
- Explore what comfort measures are available to you in labour
- Discuss your Birth Preferences and create a Post Natal Support Plan
Whatever your story and however your journey into pregnancy, I can provide you with a supportive, non-judgement approach to birth preparation. If you’ve had a previously had a negative birth experience, have had mental health challenges, experienced pregnancy loss or other types of losses we can navigate the complex emotions that come with pregnancy and reframe how you view birth.
With a KGH-accredited Hypnobirthing teacher in Surrey registered with FEDANT (Federation of Antenatal Educators), a psychology graduate with 2 years postgraduate Mental Health Nursing training, you can trust that you will receive an excellent antenatal education. I am also a mum of one who has personal experience of working through PND, parental loss, pregnancy loss and having a positive birth experience so I know what it’s like.
I also offer the Traumatic Birth Recovery 3 Step Rewind treatment over 3 sessions we can address any PTSD symptoms that may have developed from previous birth trauma.
Pregnancy can be both exciting and terrifying so your birth preparation needs to be sensitive and tailored to your circumstances
